1 Corinthians 11:24 (NKJV) – and when he had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
The Bible is full of powerful acts and instruction for the Body of Christ. God’s ways are not our ways and He frequently uses these simple types and shadows to deliver profound truths and convey the operation of His Kingdom. Like we see in 1 Corinthians 11:24 with the prophetic act of communion, it announces the Lord’s death until He comes again!
(1 Corinthians 11:26) It’s such a simple demonstration that we get to participate in and steward the impact.

Declaration: I am determined to take the cup of thanksgiving, participating in the blood of Jesus, which cleanses me of all unrighteousness. I will take the bread in participation of the Body of Christ, of which Jesus is the chief cornerstone and the head. I have entered into the new covenant that Jesus fulfilled in the breaking of His body and the pouring out of His blood on my behalf. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

The apostle Paul instructs us not to drink the cup of communion unworthily. We are to examine ourselves and honor the Lord. Through His sacrifice, we escape the corruption of the world and enter into salvation. Thereby we spend eternity with King Jesus who declared, “Assuredly, I say to you, I will no longer drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” – Mark 14:25 NKJV 

On the road to Emmaus, two followers of Jesus didn’t discern that they were discussing scriptures and prophecy with Jesus Himself. It was the prophetic act of Him breaking bread and blessing it that caused them to recognize Him.  Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight. 32 And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”  – Luke 24:30-32 NKJV
That’s the thing with prophetic acts, they continue to unveil revelation and transform lives throughout generations. Just like the word of God, of which King Jesus is the living manifestation! (John 1:14)

Here recently in the age of pandemics, there were countless testimonies of families coming together and taking communion, believing God for supernatural health and healing. Perry Stone likes to call communion “the meal that heals.” I love that! Friends, prophetic acts belong to us. Just as they’re a simple demonstration of God’s profound truth, they can be a simple display of our faith in God and expectation for Him to move on our behalf.
